English Model Strips Down To Promote Devil May Cry 4

Who says a game needs to have a hot heroine in order for the "sex sells" promotion to have the desired effect? Nah, just hire a hottie who doesn't mind taking off her shirt, dress her up to look like the protagonist, and bingo. So it goes.

You're looking at English model Vikki Blows, who did a special layout in Front magazine to promote Capcom's stylish action extravaganza, Devil May Cry 4. For the other full pics, go ahead and visit Spike.com, and yes, they have another link where you can see the goods without the censorship. But anyway, this is yet another marketing campaign geared toward the appropriate audience; the audience that would probably love something like DMC4, so it's basically guaranteed to work. Of course, we're wondering if Capcom may want to drop the price a bit for the holidays; remember, this game released way back in early February, so perhaps now is the perfect time to shave a bit off that retail price. Besides, if you're going to run a campaign like this, you've got to give the gamer a little something besides air-brushed T&A. Oh, and by the way, this particular title really does rock your socks, so it's not like Capcom is desperately trying to advertise a piece of junk.

Does this do anything for you? Is it enough to make you buy the game? Or, if you haven't played it yet, will you just go by reviews and other information before making the purchase...like a normal human with a functioning brain? Eh, if you're on the fence, maybe Vikki will give you a subconscious push.

Actually, one look at her makes me forget everything, including the game, which was quite a memorable one, mind you.

I see nothing wrong with this kind of marketing. Isn't going to make me purchase DMC4 but it makes me smile for a few seconds while slaving away at my office desk.

That, my good sir, is simply proof of your own inexperience.

Not only should hair color not matter that much, brunettes are way way better than blondes.

Blondes generally don't do more than tease since they know they can get what they want simply by flirting.

Brunettes actually try. They know they're not thought to be as fun or exotic as the others, so they put some effort into it. You can get brunettes to do a lot more -- especially outside a frat house -- with a lot less coaxing.

Hair color really doesn't matter at all, but I do prefer dark hair myself. The way I see it, waaaay too many blonds in the world and a great deal of them are not natural.

I'll answer, NO DMC is nothing like Final Fantasy. I'm a fan of both series but DMC is action and FF is RPG. Hope I helped.

There is a new Playstation Visa card out now. If you get it and purchase a PS3 between now and December 31, they'll knock $150 off when you bill comes. Pay of the cut rate PS3 and never use the card again, you get a new system for nearly half price. Unfortunately it doesn't help you with your PS2 games.

Yup. Just in time for the new offer. And with all those games, trade all except the best ones in, and I'd be suprised if you'd have to pay anything. And I'd be surprised you wouldn't get enough money for a few new games coming out. Just curious why dod it die? Disc failure, power-related?

That Sucks! If you don't mind me asking, what happened to it? was it a software or hardware failure? It's just kinda rare hearing about a PS3 going Critical Mass. Too bad you didn't have an extended warranty on the unit, just for thought you might check into Square trade, they have some really affordable coverage for almost everything. I hope you get your system up and running again real soon!

This keeps with the style of the game for sure..maybe they should do an ad campaign like this for all the games sony has, lol, Anyone want a female version of Nathan Hale for R2? Yellow eyes and all?
Although Heavenly Sword would probably work up more revenue....

I've just noticed that best to worst is the chronological order, this is either a coincidence or we need another prequel.

This advertising is cheap. DMC has nothing to do with naked babes.

Why they can't thing something original?

In reality, there isn't a whole lot that we buy that has to do with naked babes...but when we see a naked woman beside something, we want her. But, since we can't have her we'll take whatever she's selling. This is the way it's been for years. Until the buyer decides that the whole "sex sells" marketing isn't going to work, we're going to keep seeing it. Remember the family guy episode of back in cavemen times?
"Pretty woman stand by wheel, now me want wheel"
Something tells me that this type of "Cheap" advertising isn't going anywhere soon.

Nice idea wont make me buy Devil May Cry 4 though.

If your not a fan of a game a naked/semi naked woman may work for you but for most people it wont though. So horny teenage adolescents may buy hoping the woman is in the game somewhere.
